Diagnosing the problem

Try to build a simple report via the Report Designer does it fail with the error "INFO-0813"? If so please see below, or if not, contact Technical Support with the error message you see.

Resolving the problem

Check the odbc.ini file for the Oracle connection's datasource name.

cd $INFOHOME/util and run ./SetRepLogin repository_two repository_two ODBCDataSourceName (where repository_two is the Repository Schema owner - the format is user password SID)

Restart Reporter and log in as the Administrator User

Select the UserAdmin applet --> SQL Data Sources --> reporter

Database Type should be set to ODBC

ODBC Source should be set to the ODBCDataSourceName value used in SetRepLogin earlier
